Tiger Tracker Postscript: Tiger Woods stalking victory at the 2019 Masters

Jason Day of Australia hits on the fourth hole during the first round for the Masters golf tournament Thursday

That he would go on to birdie the hole was but one aspect of a wild second round at the Masters.

All 14 of his major wins have come after Woods held the 54-hole lead.

Tiger Woods is now in a tie for 9that 6-under and is even par on the day. "This is now three straight majors that I've been in the mix, so it's good stuff", he said afterward.

The final group at the Masters usually tees off around 3pm Finau, who trails Molinari by two, played in the last group at last year's US Open. and said killing the morning can be a painful process.

But Friday was far from a breeze. "And that's what I want to focus on and I know that I'm playing well enough". "So I can live with that". "So I enjoy it, it's fun, getting definitely more comfortable with it as every major goes by". I made some putts.

While other players were taking advantage of benign conditions, with soft greens allowing them to fire fearlessly at the pin, Woods's round seemed to be passing him by. And I've always felt it, from the first time I remember ever playing a golf tournament to now. He has never been worse than second in that category in his four Masters victories.

Famous for an ugly ankle sprain he sustained during last year's par three contest when he twisted his foot while jumping up and down celebrating a hole-in-one, Finau will now be remembered for matching the Masters record for lowest front nine.

Woods, who last slipped on the Green Jacket in 2005, will start Sunday's final round with Molinari and Tony Finau.

Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau started Friday with a one-shot lead.

Also on six under with Woods were world No.2 Dustin Johnson, fellow American Xander Schauffele and South African Justin Harding. Ian Poulter and Jon Rahm are at 5-under. "The leaders will tee off at 9:20am".

"Hopefully the putter can warm up a little bit", Scott said. But to lead wire-to-wire at East Lake, and to do that under tough conditions against the hottest players all year, that gave me a lot of confidence going into the season. There are so many great players in with a chance. "It is really an incredible leaderboard".

If Day goes on to win the Masters, and he holds a share of the lead at 7 under after shooting a 67 in the second round Friday, it will be a testament to his will, pain tolerance, chiropractor, masseuse, pharmacist and those unusual farting noises he makes during unorthodox treatments meant to adjust his ribcage.

After a 30-minute delay, Woods came out and missed the 5-footer.

He took advantage of the break, punching his second shot to wedge range and then skipping his next up to set up a birdie. "That's the way it goes".

I've picked out a twoball featuring Woods who played sensationally yesterday but missed a few short putts that would otherwise have catapulted him to the top of the leaderboard on his own. But he made it up for them with a couple of long birdie putts, and he had no complaints with his position.
